Broncos vs Chargers Game preview
The Broncos are yet to defeat a divisional opponent this year and will travel to Los Angeles to try and change that against a Chargers team who seem to be doing just fine without Keenan Allen.
It’s really hard to know what to make of this Broncos team. It feels like every week they’re placed under a national spotlight and find some way of ruining their chances of winning in the most ridiculous way possible. If they were a Formula 1 team, they’d be Ferrari.
The offense is sputtering at every turn and everyone not named Courtland Sutton appears to have stagnated in a worrying way. Factor in the loss of RB Javonte Williams and a huge hole at LT, and the offenses issues could only worsen as time goes on.
On the other end of things, the secondary has lost Ronald Darby and now faces an explosive Chargers offense. Justin Herbert has been sacked fewer times than any NFL quarterback and if the cornerback group can’t put clamps on what has become a very speedy receiving corps, then Herbert will have no problems in marching his offense down the field.
Broncos vs Chargers Betting pick
There is only really one way to bet this game and that’s behind the Chargers. I can’t see the Broncos being able to put up more than 21 points against a defense that has already forced 6 interceptions and is only allowing 6.6 yards per passing attempt.
The Chargers are too explosive offensively and Russell Wilson won’t be able to keep up.
‘Broncos Country, let’s ride’ Is also an automatic 5-point handicap.
